- Iowa Legendary Rye Whiskey: Born on a small farm in Iowa during the Prohibition era of the 1920s, Iowa Legendary Rye was originally distilled by a local grandmother and clandestine bootlegger. This is her recipe for a truly legendary 100 percent Rye Whiskey using grain grown locally in Carroll County, Iowa and distilled in small batches of 26-gallon stills.
- John L. Sullivan: John L. Sullivan was known as the Boston Strong Boy. He was the last Bare-Knuckle Boxing Heavyweight Champion of the world and the first Gloved Boxing Heavyweight Champion of the World. Similar to his boxing persona, Sullivan was larger than life outside of the ring. A regular in pubs across the country, he enjoyed his whiskey the same way he enjoyed all his vices – to excess. John L. Sullivan is a small-batch Irish whiskey named in honor of the man who created the sport of boxing as it is known today.
- Black Bull Whisky: Black Bull Whisky was first produced as a blend by the Dundee-based blenders, George Wilsher & Co, in the 1860s, coming to prominence after the repeal of Prohibition in the United States in the 1930s. By the end of the 1980s, Black Bull was well-known throughout the U.S. for its distinctive flavor and unique, time-tested blends. Black Bull blends range from the vibrant, untamed Kyloe to the definitive, refined 40-year blend, offering something to suit every personality and palate.
